DESPERATE MUM IN NEED OF SOMEBODY TO UNDERSTAND!!!!!
I have a 7 year old daughter, who has suffered all her life with sensory disorder. She has struggled from birth to wear clothes, underwear and shoes as she finds them awfully uncomfy and impossible to wear.Its a huge struggle getting her out of the house everyday and sometimes we end up staying in as it is too distressing for her.
I have received no support or understanding from Child & Family or her school.
She hasn't been in school for 3 Weeks now as she cant get any underwear or clothes on. This also means her anxiety has gone sky high.
She also has sleep problems, were she struggles to get to sleep and often wakes up after having terrifying night terrors. This also adds to her anxiety and makes everything worse.
Season changes are very difficult times for us as getting her into different clothes is a huge struggle and doesnt always happen. It could be winter and she would only want to wear her vest top. Socks and underwear are a big problems for us and she often doesnt wear either, shoes are also a problem and she wears the same ones all year round.
Im really desperate to find some help for my daughter so if you think that your child has any similar problems PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE comment on this.
